"La Defense" La Défense Tip by Lilasel

La Défense, Paris: 20 reviews and 21 photos


Favorite thing: This skyscraper business city on the western edge of Paris is the largest office developement in Europe. La Grande Arche is an enormous hollow cube large enough to contain Notre-Dame cathedral. Designed by Danish architect Otto von Spreckelsen in the late 1980s, the arch houses an exhibition gallery and a conference centre, and offers a superb view over the city.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
